Childhood Friends Become Gay Lovers

This list is for stories of childhood friends who become gay lovers. While they may share some titles, this is different from 'best friends become lovers', the list that has already existed for long. Here, the MCs are childhood friends. In the other list, 'best friends' can be adult co-workers who only met each other when they were thirties, for instance. Such relationship is not part of this list. I'm aware that there will be some gray areas about what goes to the list, so I just makes a simple rule: the cut-off for 'childhood' is if the MCs met each other in the high school or before. This is based on assumption that high school marks the end of 'innocence'. This means those stories where the MCs met in college is not part of the list.

In some stories, the MCs continue to become friends without ever become a couple, until events in the book, that is. In others, the main characters became lovers early on, but they have to face all kind of temptations that might pull them apart. There are also stories where they were childhood best friends who shared their 'first', and then--for whatever reasons--they were separated, only to meet each other again when the book starts. Finally, there are also some stories where the MCs went to a same school, but they were 'enemies' (usually one was a geek or flaming gay, the other was a jock), and when they were adults they found each other.

Why 'childhood' friends? Because there is a sense of innocence, perhaps from experiencing coming of age together, that they shared. Adulthood is a total different world, and to have someone from that age of innocence to share it together is something worth to remember and cherish.
